Communication, & Social Media
How do I communicate with you?
To book an initial phone consultation, you can use my booking portal to find a time that works for you. You pick a time, I'll confirm the appointment, and then I'll call you. It's that simple!
After we begin working together, you can call me or leave me a voicemail to reschedule appointments, and I will get back to you within 24 hours. We can also text via phone or my client portal to discuss scheduling, but will not discuss any clinical or personal information so as to safeguard confidentiality.
What about social media?
In order to protect your confidentiality (e.g. private health information, including that you are in therapy with me), I will not accept any friend requests, respond to any messages, or reply to any tweets from you.
What if I have an emergency?
In case of an emergency call 911 or go to your nearest emergency room. Leave me a voicemail if you cannot reach me letting me know you will be going to the emergency room.
How do we handle it if we bump into each other?
If I bump into you on the street, I'll say hi! Then I'll go about my day. I don't stop to talk because I don't want to break your confidentiality. If someone--a friend, a partner, a family member--asks you "Who was that ruggedly handsome albeit vertically challenged man?", it's your call. You can say it's just someone you know, or you can stick your head in the ground and ignore the question, or you can tell them I'm your therapist. Up to you. My responsibility is to protect your confidentiality. You might have feelings about that. Let's talk about it!
